Last Minute Holiday Outfit Ideas

Red is always a good pop of color for the holiday season. If you don’t know what to wear for your holiday party, picking red is always a good idea. In today’s post, we took this photoshoot during our Japan trip. Our family decided to visit Harajuku and I heard about this famous street since I was 13 years old. I was quite excited to finally to go see. But the shoot  was not at Harajuku though, it’s right after we took the metro at Omotesando subway station. We walked along the high-end street where Gucci, Prada, Chanel and other name brands you could think of are located. It was early in morning so there weren’t a lot of people walking around.

I was 27 weeks pregnant at that time and it was hilarious to dress up, walked along the road and then had Braxton Hicks contractions at the same time.

My husband and I were planning to get a channel card case for me, as a reminder that we visited Japan and as my Anniversary present. But as I did a some research about the price, here was not such a good place to buy high-end items. The prices are a lot higher than in the States.

Overall I had so much fun taking picture along the way walking to my dream shopping street, Harajuku. I just had to work before I could start shopping! 🙂

What I am wearing in this post is this red ballon sleeve knit sweater from Forever 21, my red leopard cami dress is from Nasty Gal and my red Vince Camuto suede mules are from Sole Society. Here are the similar halfmoon sunglasses and faux fur top handle bag.

These are a few of my photos in Harajuku Street!

Day One of #GOODVIBESGIFTING

Last Minute Holiday Outfit | Fall Winter Outfit Ideas | Red Leopard #GoodVibesGifting_Molly Larsen IG @thevibescloset_allaboutgoodvibes.com

Get to know me: To think about one of grateful thing that happen to me in my life, I would have to bring up this story to share with you. I grew up in a family of a single mother. My mother worked 7 days a week as a teacher and tutor until the day she retired. She really never had a day off, maybe during Thai New Year and that was about 3 days a year, that was the time she didn’t have to work. She barely made it through each month to support here kids which included my brother, my sister and myself.

Sometimes we barely had enough money to just buy some eggs and share for dinner. Strange thing was that I never acted or felt like I didn’t have enough. Because in my heart I always knew that I have my mother, my brother and my sister. My family is all I need.

All of the hardship our family went through since I was little, had made me feel so strong, and so grateful to have the life I live today. I never give up on my dream, I never stoped dreaming, neither stoped learning.

This might sound funny, but I am so happy that my life wasn’t as smooth as others. One thing that helped me keep  going when it came to some hard time, is to compare my bad situations, to what my mother had to go through to help support our family, which were (will be) incomparable.

In conclusion, I am so very grateful that I was born in a family that cherish love and support, not money or objects. I grew up with love, understanding and my my siblings and I never envy others’ lives. I’m loving my life and who I am now as much as my life and who I was then.

Question for you today: Share with us, what is one grateful thing about yourself?

I’m looking forward to reading your stories. Don’t forget to stop by my Instagram and  answer a fun question there too! Also don’t forget to use #GoodVibesGifting at the end of the your comment so I know you are participating in this contest.

To get a sneak peek on the gifts you might win, watch my InstaStory here.

See you again tomorrow for more stories!

xoxo,

I am grateful I survived a violent, scary childhood. I am grateful I made a pledge to not be bitter, to learn and grow from all the hardships, and to appreciate the better times. I love being an adult and having the freedoms and safety of walking away from any danger. I love that I am a parent that chooses to treat and love my children as I was not. To make that difference. I am grateful for my life and my survival. #GoodVibesGifting

I am grateful I survived being a survivor of suicide. I lost my husband very tragically in 2004, 5 weeks after he returned from A Year in Iraq. There were days I couldn’t get out of bed. And other days I wanted to be dead. It Took a whole lot of counseling and support from some stronger friends and family who put up with all the HURT, anger and lashing out. They HELD together the pieces of me. And I’m so glad to still be here. #GoodVibesGifting

I am very grateful for being born into this world by a beautiful angel I often call mom. And I’m also very grateful for having tireless heroes like my father. I am very grateful for having a brother and sister who loves me very much. I am very grateful to have a friend to confide in about anything. Their presence helped me a lot in living this hard life. I don’t have any experience, because I’m still a student. One experience I’ve experienced was bully. But, in the presence of all of them I was no longer afraid of bullying.… Read more »

I am grateful for the birth of my daughter, I found out years later that I had a tumor/cyst on my pituitary gland. I wasn’t producing hormones and had this since puberty but never knew and it just kept growing all those years. I realized then how lucky I was to have even gotten pregnant, ALso i didn’t produce breast milk and never knew why. As much as I have always loved her, with the news I found out, I realized how much of a miracle she really was and appreciated her even MORE. #GoodVibesGifting

I am grateful to be alive to be with my husband and beautiful daughter. In 2014, on my way to driving my daughter to school, we were hit by a distracted driver. My neck and back were severely injured. Despite Orthopedic treatment, I live with the pain and partial muscle loss of my right side everyday. I am grateful that my daughter and I are here today, right now to celebrate Christmas together. Happy holidays to everyone and remember to hold the ones you love

close. #GoodVibesGifting

I am grateful and proud to be a survivor. I was molested as a child and raped when I was in my twenties. I am finally learning to cope with these things at the ripe old age of 59. I have learned these things do not define me and it’s never too late to start anew. #GoodVibesGifting

I am grateful for my natural instinct to nurture. Growing up, I didn’t have the easiest childhood or the most loving parents and I made the decision when my husband and I chose to have kids to give them the opposite of that. I feel like nurturing my children and showering them with love comes easily to me and I’m grateful for that. #goodvibesgifting

The other day i started across our busy road to get the mail from our mailbox. I saw a truck coming so i tried to hurry on across. I fell and couldn’t get up. I pulled myself off the road to the side of the road. The People in the truck saw me fall and stopped while i pulled myself off the road. They asked if i was ok. I used my purse to push myself up off the shoulder of the road. I had scrapes on my hands,elbows and a large bruise on my hip but i could have… Read more »
